I was delighted to be elected to Lewes Town Councillor at the 2022 by-election to represent the residents of Castle Ward, as the first Labour Councillor since 1979! I am passionate about community and sustainability. I run a sustainable business in The Needlemakers in Lewes as well as two award winning community projects: Landport Community Café and Lewes School Uniform Bank. Both projects aim towards zero waste, have community support at their heart and offer practical solutions to local problems. I bring experience and qualifications from my previous job in supporting people with housing and benefits advice and look forward to advocating for residents in these areas. In my spare time, I enjoy long walks with my family and two rescue dogs, paddle boarding at Barcombe Mills or Cuckmere Haven and supporting Lewes FC at the Dripping Pan as one of 2000+ community owners.
